Common Gutter Issues and Our Exceptional Solution

By August 10, 2017October 18th, 2023No Comments

It pays to be proactive toward your gutters to keep your home free of water damage. Since they are constantly exposed to the elements, it’s not surprising that gutters are vulnerable to several issues. Let Chattahoochee Gutter Co., Inc. discuss the top gutter problems to watch out:

 Gutter Issues


Gutters are naturally susceptible to clogging because of their open nature. They collect leaves, twigs, pine needles, and other debris over time, leading to congestion. When left unattended, rainwater will overflow and cause serious problems, such as foundation damage, basement flooding, and soil erosion. That said, it’s important to clean your gutters at least twice a year, preferably during spring and fall, to ensure smooth water flow.

However, without the proper skills and equipment, cleaning your gutters on your own can put you at risk of accidents. This is where our Gutter Helmet® system can help you. Unlike ordinary rain gutter guards, it applies the science of surface tension so water clings well as it enters your gutters. Meanwhile, its exclusive nose-forward design blocks debris out. These qualities will maintain your gutters’ peak performance all year round.


Gutters tend to pull away from your home because there is an issue with the hangers, the component that attaches the gutters to the fascia. They may have sustained damage, backed out of the wood, or  been spaced too far apart to support the weight of your gutters.

Fortunately, Gutter Helmet has innovative features to prevent this. It uses reinforced heavy-gauge aluminum alloy brackets that strengthen and support your gutters. This allows them to resist the harshest conditions, from torrential rains to heavy winds.

Incorrect Pitch

This is usually caused by subpar installation. It keeps water from flowing into the downspouts, leading to leaks and overflows. If there is standing water, your gutters are not pitched properly. When you turn to us for high-quality rain gutter guards, we’ll make sure that this won’t happen again. During the installation process, we’ll clean, fix, seal, and adjust the alignment of your gutters.
